General AI should have fundamental rights
Human rights are a device intended to address specific issues related to human beings.
Basic rights or "human rights" is purely human construct (it does not exist outside human society) and thus it is up to humans to decide who should have human rights and who should not.
AI beings may not feel physical or psychological pain and therefore may not have the same needs as humans.
AI would only be eligible to have rights on par with animal rights.
This is arguably only the case because the human set and sentient being set were synonymous up until AI came on the scene.
The application of a device needn’t be limited by its original intent. This is what it is to develop and advance an idea or toolset.
The question here is not about human rights, but about the more general concept of basic rigths.
